Thank you for going the extra mile to find her maiden name and obit. Her parents' obits both placed her in Charleston, SC, and I thought I'd never find her. I'm not related, just rounding up the children of these parents...wish you had the others!

Tari Levitt Parr
RE: Levitt 56962223 & Teufel 57132107 edits
It is definately incorrect. She was born in Clay County, Illinois, the daughter of Obediah & Amy Nash Levitt. I have no idea why her death record says New Hampshire.

Obediah was murdered in Oregon, Missouri in 1864, Amy died before 1860, most of the children were farmed out to other relatives.

The children were:

Victoria Levitt Yoacum 5807692
Lorenzo Dow Levitt 56962223
Nathaniel Levitt (not Matthew) b. Jul 1861 Reynolds County, MO
Alena Levitt b. 1857 Reynolds County, MO

Nathaniel's real name was Ignatious, which goes back in our family line for many, many generations (I number them, as there are that many!) Last know location for Nathaniel was 1930, in Shannon County, Missouri.

Re James W. Robison and John M. Robison
buried in Sangamon County, Ill. and your message. Thanks for finding this obit. I am sure that is my gr gr uncle and I appreciate the work you did to find his obituary. I'm sure his son, John M. Robison, is buried next to him; John M. died about 1881. I had called this cemetery a while back and they did give me some information about who was buried on the grave lot. Ann

Hi. Thanks for your input on Jennie's burial....I had called the funeral home and found out where she is to be buried. I went back and made a note to that effect on her memorial.

Hi BjJ:

Thank you for your support as I continue to improve my family's memorials.

I added new tombstone pictures to my mother's maternal grandparents memorials: Anna Marie Maisenbacher #109769533 & Frank J. Mueller #63749493. If you would be so kind to remove your old pictures, I would be obliged since they are no longer needed. I have sponsored both their memorials :)

My maternal grandparents Mercedes Mueller & Robert McHugh are buried right next to my paternal grandparents Matilda Hulcher & Carl Harvey Becker in Oak Ridge Cemetery block 22!

John B.

BjJ, Thank you so much for the great picture of Samuel Shreves headstone. I had just received the e-mail from you saying that some of the graves were not marked and was answering that I understand. Anyway, thanks so much for the early present. Hope Santa is good to you.

James Henry Garrison
The James Henry Garrison that you have listed as buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery was, according to his obituary, interred in Hall Cemetery in Athens. SJR, 23 May 1984. This would explain why no death date was inscribed on his stone in Oak Ridge.

RE: Carrie Foreman Massey #24001303
I had an obituary extract for Lucinda and have sent off various requests for links and addition of data for Lucinda which would confirm her as Carrie's mother. I've edited that extract with information that might help. Material in brackets or parens are my additions:

From the Wayne County Press, 4/16/1953:

Mrs. Albert [Lucinda Byrd] Sarles, 82, died. Born English, Ind. May 22, 1870. She lived here for 20 years. Leaves husband Albert (#107204775), a girl Carrie Massey of Springfield, a son Lynwood Foreman of Hobert, Ind., 2 step-sons Roscoe and Raymond Sarles of Alton. Maple Hill Cemetery. ( #113739723) [First married to Charles L. Foreman (#131749852).]

Does that help? The brother from Carrie's obit matches the son from Lucinda's except for exact spelling. I'm sure I found something else, but at the moment I can't find it, probably a census record. In 1920 Lucinda Foreman, widow is living with "Lenwood" Foreman and Carrie Massey and her husband and child. In 1930 Lucinda has married Albert and is living with him and his son Raymond.

Hi BjJ:

I wish you and your family the best for Thanksgiving. I am now sponsoring ten Find A Grave memorials.

I added new tombstone pictures to my maternal grandparents memorials: Mercedes Elizabeth Mueller # 11149013 and Robert John McHugh # 22506148.

I would be obliged if you could please remove the old tombstone pictures, as they are no longer needed.

Have a great holiday weekend,

Olga Jackson Curtis #10967502

I have changed the name on Olga's memorial to only Jackson. I noticed her obituary makes no mention of a husband so I wonder if they were divorced? Hard to say, but I changed her name and made a notation on the bottom of the memorial. Thanks for the heads up!
